Arizona is an incredible place to live with many unique qualities. For starters, it's home to the Grand Canyon, which will fill you with awe at its vastness. Arizona is also one of the only states in the US that does not observe daylight savings time. Therefore, you never have to adjust your clocks forwards or backwards. Phoenix is the state capital and is the largest state capital in the US and its population continues to swell. Also, with scorching days easily reaching over 100, it's no surprise Arizona was the first state to build a wave pool. Last, Arizona is the only place on the planet where the saguaro cactus grows.
"I love how you were open and shared stories from your own life. I also appreciated how the couples retreat required exercises for couples to do together. Lastly, I really appreciated all the resources provided. Thank You." -C.K. previous attendant
The Couples Retreat in AZ Covers
1-Establishing a Covenant Foundation
Everything around us suggests divorce. However, when commitment is fragile, it breaks down the emotional and physical intimacy in a relationship. Furthermore, jumping from marriage to marriage short circuits our opportunity to become refined through the challenges and feedback we receive in marriage. Marriage is the ultimate refining tool to make us better people and better partners if we can develop a long-term, covenant mindset. This step will show you how.
2-Owning Your Brokenness
So many conflicts are caused by both partners pointing out what the other one did wrong. As you may have heard, every time we point a finger there are three fingers pointing back at us. To have a healthy marriage, it's vital to own our shortcomings and where they came from. Once we do that, we're much more likely to take ownership for our part in conflicts, which will resolve them much quicker.
3-Learning to Share Power
Marriage is usually made up of two people with major differences. These differences often get amplified in decision making, such as how to manage money, how to parent, etc. Learning to share power refers to couples discovering how to respect their partner's perspective and create win/wins so both feel honored. Doing so will make both partners feel like their voice matters and respected.
4-Developing Emotional Attachment
The base of all good marriages is a good friendship. Good friends spend quality time together, share their inner thoughts and feelings, work through resentments, and are careful when navigating the tricky waters of conflict. This step will show you how to do all of this with concrete, practical tools. Learning to make friendship a central tenant of your relationship is vital to its success.
5-Cultivating Sexual Fireworks
Great sex is usually automatic early in a relationship. However, for a myriad of reasons, most couples fall into sexual dissatisfaction the longer they are together. Sometimes it's from a lack of emotional closeness, other times from differences in libido, and still other times from unhealed sexual trauma. This step will teach you how to build sensual and sexual time together in a mutually pleasurable way where voice and choice are at the center.
6-Staying in Love
Many people ask how to stay in love and believe if you fall out of love there's no way to fix it. That's false. There's a very predictable way to fall back in love and stay in love and this step will show you how. Staying in love is the ultimate goal of marriage because it brings happiness, deep satisfaction, and naturally divorce and affair proofs the relationship.
"We enjoyed the conversations around our upbringing and how it influences our behavior and reactions. We talked about our families and memories in ways that we never had before. We also liked the fillers and drainers and refer to them regularly." -M.B. previous attendant
